I sent him a card.

1-Yes but it was belated.
2-Yes but it was belatedly.

Are sentences 1 and 2 acceptable in this context?

Both sentences need a comma after Yes.

No. 1 is fine with the adjective belated. The sentence means it was a belated card.

No. 2 would sit better with me if it included a verb, e.g., it was sent/done belatedly.
